Kingkey Financial Center Plaza taking shape 

The tower, which is still under construction, has surpassed the neighbouring Diwang Mansion to become the city’s tallest building. A new Shenzhen record building speed of two floors completed per day was set by the contractor building the tower. The former record — one floor completed in three days — was set during the construction of the Shenzhen International Trade Building in the 1980s. The Kingkey tower will be 441 meters tall when completed next year.

Terry Farrell and Partners were commissioned to design the soaring tower after winning an international competition for the project back in 2006, and it is hoped the Kingeky Financial Center Plaza will be completed by the end of this year. At an eye-watering 98 storeys, the tower boasts over 210,000 sq m of accommodation and will form part of an extensive two-phase mixed-use facility in China’s rapidly growing Shenzhen region.
